January 6, 2022

We often focus on what summer heat stress steals from our feedlot revenue; but we tend to put the blinders on when we try to account for what winter cold stress costs us as an industry. Perhaps living in the Midwest, we are accustomed to the cold stress and have the mentality to ‘just deal […]

- Jon Qual, Qual Dairy

Working with the Form-A-Feed team makes us feel like we are not on our own. The Form-A-Feed team is really good about getting out to our barns on a consistent basis. It’s helpful to have the team tell us what to expect based on what they are seeing in the industry. The service always continues […]

- Hokeness Grain & Livestock

They actually walk our cattle prior to making recommendations and take the time to discuss them with us. We are able to make necessary […]

- Gene & David McClellan

I have been raising steers for more than 25 years and have always been on the Tend-R-Leen program. It works well for me with the whole shell corn and protein pellet in my set-up. The results are really good. I’m extremely happy with the results.

- Joe Wollak

Cattle fill out very nicely before we market them. I’ve used Hydro-Lac for eight years. We feed one pound per head daily for two consecutive days before we market our cattle. After further discussion with my Form-A-Feed representative, I will consider using Hydro-Lac during times of heat stress too.

- Doug Loyson

We appreciate the product flexibility and convenience offered with Form-A-Lic tubs. Knowing our cow herd receives a nutrient dense product with consistent intakes makes these tubs a great management tool.

- Polzin Embryo Center

I can see my calves swarm to the Stress Lic tubs when we put them in. Calves don’t lick ground or gates anymore, and they are healthier.

- Jeff Bremer

Intakes are improved after calving from what we were doing in our previous program. Fresh pen milk is up and Hydro-Lac is the only thing we are doing that is different.

- John Warren

We’re confident in what Form-A-Feed brings to our entire operation. We have trust in their Dairy Team, confidence in their ration balancing program, and can utilize the expertise they provide to our Risk Management Team. Form-A-Feed is a real asset to us!
